How did you find us / what brought you to SWEAT?

I had heard about SWEAT Wakefield before but had never been. Then through word of mouth & Instagram, I saw that you guys were opening up a studio in Danvers that happens to only be 5 mins from where I live!

I have been doing at home workouts & running outside (weather permitting) for a long time now. I’m Type 1 Diabetic and I just liked the convenience and safety of working out from home and being by myself. I was scared of being judged. However, I needed a change. I needed something that I had to commit to and wouldn’t flake out on or make excuses for. I found that with SWEAT.

First impression of us?

My first class was a sweat&press with Kim. Enough said? Hahaha. I had done spin class in previous years but NOTHING comparable to this workout and I was instantly hooked (even tho it took me like 6 classes to be able to clip my shoes in by myself)

I’ve taken classes primarily with Kim, Krista, and Francesca and I’ve loved every single one of them. I love how different each instructor is and how different each individual class is. The music, the atmosphere, the positive and inspiring attitude is everything I didn’t know I needed. 

I want to also take the time to write about when I first let some of the staff know about me being Type 1 Diabetic - having a phone in class, carrying a juice box, possibly needing to excuse myself, etc. - Nick, Kim, and Francesca were absolutely amazing and truly caring. So thank you for that. It’s not often you get to chat with someone who truly takes an interest in how exercise effects my condition & what measures I need to take, Nick did that. It just made me feel super comfortable.

What was one of the most challenging SWEAT classes you’ve taken?

Honestly, I find every single SWEAT class to be challenging. However I believe it was Krista’s either right before thanksgiving or on thanksgiving where I found myself swearing out loud and thinking ok .... what is she doing to me right now (obviously in a good way) those sprints out of the saddle are my biggest challenge!!!!

Take us through your SWEAT journey how has it changed you?

I honestly was hooked after the first class of SWEAT. All of the instructors that I have taken class with are so so so motivational/inspiring during the class with what they say, it’s all so relatable and makes me work that much harder. It has changed me completely because never in a million years did I ever think I’d take part in a group setting style of exercise, and NEVER would you catch me waking up at 5AM to workout. I’m serious, never. I’ve incorporated some 5:45AM classes into my schedule because I am so addicted and hate having to miss out on a day. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and I’m SO GLAD that I did. I love being part of SWEAT and I look forward to seeing any & all type of progress I can make going forward!

How did you find us / what brought you to SWEAT?

I first found SWEAT when I started following on Instagram.

First impression of us?

My first impression was that the studio looked like a lot of fun with really great people. Everyone was so nice and I was immediately hooked! 

What was one of the most challenging SWEAT classes you’ve taken?

One of the most challenging classes I’ve taken was the hot pop up ride with Ashley D. It was such a good workout and I loved the heat. I have never sweat that much in my life! 

Take us through your SWEAT journey how has it changed you?

Before SWEAT, I was never really excited about going to the gym. With SWEAT, I am so excited about working out. The energy that the community brings to every ride is amazing! I always feel so good and refreshed after a spin class. Being a full time student, I need a way to relax/de-stress and SWEAT is the perfect place. My SWEAT journey has been life changing. I don’t view working out and eating healthy as a chore anymore, I view it as a lifestyle that I love. All the instructors are amazing and so motivational. Thank you SWEAT !
